How to Trim Asparagus

When preparing Asparagus Spears for the griddle it is important to cut off the ends that are tough. To figure out where to cut, gently bend the asparagus. Where the asparagus bends is the start of the tender part.

I then line the large piece of asparagus up on a cutting board and cut with a sharp knife. This allows you trim the tough part off the stem.

Wash the asparagus thoroughly, season and place on the Griddle.

Seasoning Variations

  • Season with Different Spices – Season with Garlic and Lime, or garlic and parmesan, or paprika, red pepper flakes, chipotle chili and cumin. These are some of our favorites but use what you have.
  • Top with Butter – Instead of using olive oil, slice some unsalted butter.
